Not sure if this has been covered… I’m using tasker, sharptools and an android tablet to set virtual switches on an off based on light levels. I can then use that with the rule smart app to better control my lights based on motion and light level. Glad I switched to Smartthings. Amazing!
Thanks to all the independent coders
Very cool usage of SharpTools - thanks for sharing!
Are you doing this using the built-in %LIGHT variable in Tasker or Light Level state?
The last recorded light level in lux.
Light Level State:
The current light level as a (massaged) percentage of the minumum and maximum light levels ever seen.
After setting this state up, you should calibrate it by covering up the device for a few seconds and exposing it to bright light.
I started with the Variable but just switched to the Sensor Light Level state. I like having the range choice. I use a different android light level app just to see the lux level so I can adjust everything to based on my house.
I’m also using Sharptools and tasker to watch my modes. My connected tablets will switch apps based on my home modes… “TV” - Open the Harmony app. “Music” (kodi) opens Yatsee - “Home” opens the smart tiles app but I’m having a hard time with getting it full screen (NO browser). “In-Bed” will turn off the 1st floor tablet screen. “asleep” - Turns off the master bedroom tablet. " - and “morning” turns them all on. At least thst’s the plan. it’s a work in progress. Cant even imagine trying to do this on my old vera.
Having a blast with it
